New Infonetics Report Projects Data Center and Enterprise SDN Market Will Top $3 Billion by 2017
CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Market research firm Infonetics
Research released market size and forecasts from its new Data
Center and Enterprise SDN Hardware and Software report, which
defines and sizes the market for software-defined networks (SDN).
The just-published report
provides critical data for important SDN market characteristics
including product categories, definitions, and worldwide and regional
market size. Notably, the report tracks and forecasts SDN controllers
and Ethernet switches in-use for SDN - the 'real' market for SDN -
separately from SDN-capable Ethernet switches. The report also includes
SDN market analysis, trends, vendor announcements, and a tracker of SDN
products currently shipping. To learn more or buy
the report, contact Infonetics (News - Alert): http://www.infonetics.com/contact.asp.
"The important question that everyone wants answered is, 'What's the real
market for SDN?'," says Cliff
Grossner, Ph.D., directing analyst for data center and cloud at Infonetics
Research. "It's still early days, but our research over the last two
years confirms that SDN controllers and Ethernet switches in-use for SDN
will play a role in enterprise and data center networks, growing to a
$3.1 billion market by 2017."
"Wide scale in-use SDN deployments will occur first in the data center
with large enterprises and cloud service providers, followed closely by
the enterprise LAN," continues Grossner.
"We're already seeing significant use cases for SDN in the enterprise
LAN providing security and unification of wired and wireless networks,
and enabling BYOD
(bring your own device)."
